Gravity Set To Skyrocket To The Top Of The Box Office, Smashing Records On Its Launch

The very much-anticipated sci-fi thriller, Gravity, starring only Sandra Bullock and George Clooney see on screen (other actors you only hear in voice over), was released on Friday (October 4) in the US and already looks like it’s going to start smashing some records! The film, which took five years to finish, was written (with the assistance of his son Jonas), directed, produced and edited by Alfonso Cuaron. After overcoming many obstacles along the way, Gravity premiered at the Venice Film Festival this past August. Receiving five stars across the board from early screenings, Gravity, and the hype surrounding it, has had a lot to live up to. Early ticket sales suggest the film has launched (pun intended) its way to the top spot and is on course to make $50m at the box office this weekend. This means it would Sandra Bullock’s and George Clooney’s biggest opener ever. While cinemagoers have been turning away from 3D films (mainly due to the pricing causing people to be selective over which films they see in this format), this film appears to have bucked the trend. With a lot of technology being used to make the film, it’s only right that it’s the 3D and IMAX cinema experience that rightfully showcases the true beauty of this film. Variety reports that the film has even done remarkably well in America’s big space competitor, Russia; taking $1.2m and becoming the number one film in the region. Gravity is on course to knock Paranormal Activity 3 off the top spot as the largest October opener of all-time at $52 million. Since its release, numerous celebrities have taken to Twitter to praise the space film: The film is not yet out in the UK, the release date is scheduled for November 8 – let’s see if any more records can be broken then! And while you're waiting, check out the trailer below: [youtube=]
